Did You Know?


Homicide is the most important and most popular drama series ever produced in Australia. Made in Melbourne by Crawford Productions, it ran for 12 years and 510 episodes, and commenced a continuous run of Australian production which has remained unbroken to the present day. It regularly rated in the high 40's and even low 50's, achieving a peak rating of 54 in Brisbane in 1968 (by comparison, today's most successful shows often only rate in the 20's). It was the success of Homicide which guaranteed the viability of Australian television drama production, and consequently the Australian feature film industry. See more »

One of the best Aussie police shows ever,along with division4 and matlock police. Unfortunately nothing ever released on DVD of all three shows.I have a few episodes on DVD that I have got from the TV and I love nothing more than watching these great Australian police shows.Along the way there has been a great number of actors used in these shows.A few of these actors have even gone on to Hollywood and made big names for them selves overseas, as well as local actors here that have even starred in other Australian made shows.The best part of watching these shows was trying to figure out where and which suburb in Melbourne it had been filmed at.
